"Find Argos near you with store locator ArgosNear.Me". It's a new website run by a new guy. I saw it first thing this morning on MSN. The site was neat. You could type in the location you want to travel to in the city or town you want to be. A great feature to have when buying something online, especially if you travel a lot.
What's so great about the ArgosNear.Me website? Simple. It has an online map of almost all of Europe, from Spain to Switzerland. You can see exactly where the stores are. Same day delivery and open 24 hours, just click and order and your order is ready to be shipped right away. Same day search and gather and home delivery available."
So, let's say you're in United Kingdom. If you search for "Valentine's Day Flowers in London", you won't find it there. But if you search for "rosas de London UK", you will. Same day delivery is also available and the site claims to have the largest selection worldwide of flower arrangements. Wow.
Now, let's say you're from the US. What do you do? Not easy. Well, if you want any UK company, any UK stores, then you're out of luck.
Apparently, they don't offer store locator services for US addresses because "that would make it too hard to compete with the stores we already have in the UK". So, I'm assuming they are not providing this search engine optimization tool for free. Otherwise, it seems very simple and easy to use.
Of course, the main question is "How do I access this search engine, if I can't find it on the company's website itself?" Well, the answer is simple. Go to Google or your preferred search engine and enter the address you found on the company's website. Press search and see what comes up. It probably won't be everything you wanted, but at least you'll get an idea of what's close by.
It might also interest you to know that if you also use a travel search engine like Google Explore, you might find something there as well. And it might even come up sooner than that (the same day, maybe?). Try that out on your own and see if it helps. There's nothing better than getting help with a problem, right? It'll also show you a few other stores in the Argos area.
If none of the above methods work, then you could always use a paid site to search for the Argos store locator you need. Some of these will probably be more detailed than the ones above, and some of them may actually offer a free trial (which you should take advantage of). It's worth taking a look.
